From electricians and public servants to stay-at-home parents, the Shellharbour City SES unit is a diverse group of people.
Now, following recent natural disasters across the state, they’re looking for more volunteers to make a commitment to the community and join the ranks.
Shellharbour City team leader Kristy Chie said being a member of the SES was a satisfying experience – helping those who need it and learning new skills along the way.
‘‘It’s just to give back [to the community],’’ Ms Chie said.
‘‘You never know when you’re going to need help.’’
The SES is the response agency for floods, storms and tsunami and also assists other emergency services when required.
It offers nationally recognised training, a friendly, supportive environment and a wide range of roles suitable for all fitness levels.
The Shellharbour unit is calling for volunteers from all age groups 16 and over and those interested are urged to attend an information evening at its headquarters at 127 Tongara Road, Albion Park on Monday February 25, starting at 7pm.
